A charity is offering up to £10,000 for information relating to the murder of Pitsea man Dwayne Forrester.

The 21-year-old was found seriously injured in Little Garth, Pitsea, at about 8.45pm on Saturday July 7, 2018.

He later died in hospital from a single stab wound.

CCTV footage released earlier showed Mr Forrester walking through Brundish, in Pitsea, just minutes before the fatal attack.

Dwayne’s brother, who hopes to represent Great Britain in the 2020 Toyko Olympics, his mother, father and sister have all spoken of their deep shock and sadness.  

A reward of up to £10,000 is available from Crimestoppers to anyone providing information directly to the charity directly, which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for Dwayne Forrester’s murder.

Five people arrested in connection with his death have all since been released under investigation.

Phil Breckon, eastern regional manager for the Crimestoppers charity, said: "Our charity believes everyone has the right to feel safe from crime, wherever they live.

"A young man has lost his life senselessly and his family are still desperate for answers. Whoever attacked Dwayne could do the same again.

“We are well aware that some people are reluctant to speak to the authorities directly about what happened, which is why we are reaching out to those who haven’t come forward.

"You may want to do the right thing for Dwayne, but haven’t spoken up yet.

"Our charity is here for you and guarantees you will stay completely anonymous if you tell us what you know. You could also be eligible for a reward of up to £10,000.

“Everyone who contacts our charity stays 100% anonymous. Always.

"We’ve kept this promise for over 31 years. Call our UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111 or use our anonymous online form- it could be your information that makes all the difference.”

To qualify for the reward, the information must be passed to Crimestoppers. Information passed directly to the police will not qualify.
